Truman Capote

Los primeros cuentos de Capote muestran a un joven genio en accion The Telegraph Estas piezas iluminan la busqueda de una voz propia. Tienen la precision y la magia de la imagen cinematografica, y dejan ver tambien una fuerte atraccion por el reportaje, presagio de lo que estaba por venir The Guardian?Quien era Capote antes de ser Capote? ?Quien era antes de llevar la vida de un dandy en Nueva York, antes de internarse en Kansas a escribir la gran novela norteamericana de no ficcion, antes de adoptar el apellido del segundo marido de su madre? Truman Streckfus Persons -tal era su verdadero nombre- tuvo una infancia de abandono y desencanto. Despues del divorcio de sus padres, su madre lo mando al campo con sus tias, en Alabama. Alli comenzo a escribir para mitigar el aislamiento. Esos relatos quedaron en el olvido durante casi ochenta anos hasta que, en 2014, fueron descubiertos en la Biblioteca Publica de Nueva York por el editor suizo Peter Haag y su mujer, Anuschka Roshani.Los trece cuentos ineditos que integran esta antologia revelan el talento temprano de Capote para observar lo que nadie mas podia ver, para inventar historias, generar climas. Este libro ilumina nuevos aspectos del escritor que ya conocemos: un joven precoz, provocador, vivaz, conflictuado, extrano y brillante. Los primeros cuentos de Capote son una prueba del virtuosismo que lo llevo a crear sus grandes obras maestras y a convertirse en una leyenda de la literatura. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Truman Capote’s First Stories presents a young genius in action. .-The Telegraph These pieces highlight the search for a voice. They are so precise and magical that it’s easy to think of them as a film. Within them we get a sneak peek into what was to come from him. -The GuardianWho was Capote before he was the great one? Who was he before he lived the dandy life in New York City, before he cloistered himself in Kansas to write the great North American nonfiction novel, and before adopting his stepfather’s name? After his parent’s divorce, he was sent to rural Alabama to live with family, it is there that he started to write in order to assimilate loneliness. Those writings were hidden until 2014 when they were discovered in the New York Public Library.The thirteen unpublished stories in this anthology reveal Capote’s early talent to observe what no one else could see, to invent stories, to create moods. This book highlights new aspects of a writer we already know: a young precocious, provocative, lively, strange, and brilliant yet conflicted one.Truman Capote’s First Stories are proof of the virtuosity that led him to write his great masterpieces and become a literary legend.
